Bates Australia are one of the leading makers of performance saddles, who use innovations such as the Easy-Change Gullet System and the CAIR Panel System to ensure ultimate comfort for horse and rider.
Bates Saddles was originally established in 1934 when Mr. George Bates borrowed $100 from his sister in order to buy a sewing machine so that he could start making saddles.
The company is still a family run business now renamed Bates Australia and is run by George Bates's grandsons Ken and Ron Bates, who continue to research and develop their saddles to provide the ultimate in excellence and performance.
Bates saddles are used by many of the top International riders such as British eventer Daisy Dick, Olympic dressage rider Isabell Werth and top Australian show jumper Greg Smith.
The Bates Range has performance saddles for a number of equestrian disciplines each one specifically designed to help enhance the performance of horse and rider.
